The Detputy A~dministrator in his final report to me on said modi-
fientionl to said Code having found as her~ein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The miodifiention of said code and the Code as modified are
well designedl~c to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act. including+ the removal of
orbitru~ctionsl to the free flow of mnterstate and foreign commerce
which tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for t~he
general welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the
purpose of cooperative action of labor andl management under ade-
quate gvrnmet'lll~lf I ntl sctionI and iiupervision, by eliminating unfair
cpt~itive practices, by promoting; the 'fullest utilization of t~he
the present productive capacity of ind-ustries, byr avoiding undue
recstr~iction of production except as may be temporarily required),
byv incrleas~ing the consumption of industrial andl agricultural ~prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemliployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Coode as modified complies9 in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said TPitle of said Act., including without, limita-
tion sub-.section (a) of Section 8, sub-section (a) of Section 7 and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) TIhe National Slate Association was and is an industrial asso-
cialtion truly represe~~~~t ntative of the aforesaid Industry and that said
association imnposed~ and imposes no inequitazble restrictions on admis-
sion to miember~ship therein and consents to this modification.
(d) The miodificationi and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or .monopolistic practices.
(e)' The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not eliminated or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discrimninate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this modification.
